Excerpt from Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 57: May, 1957
The prospect is that there will be 652 graduates, about 50 more than were on hand a year ago - 478 men and 174 women. The number, as has been the case in recent Junes, is far too large for families and friends to witness the exercises if they were confined within the Meeting House.
Two years ago, the Sock and Buskin Alumni met a need by presenting a Commencement play in Faunce House Theater. The engagement has been so well received that, in its third year, it is now a tradition. The choice for this June is_ the amusing comedy, Born Yesterday, now in rehearsal under the direction of Prof. James Barnhill. The attraction is booked for four evening performances, starting Wednesday, May 29. While the Sock and Buskin season has many subscribers, there is provision for others to attend the Alumni Show; reservations should be made directly at the Faunce House Theater Box Office, at each. All curtains are at including that of Friday evening when many wives will attend the play while the men are at the Alumni Dinner.
